Note to self - don't wuss out next time PJ Harvey comes to NYC...
The kindly folks at Billboard have posted a review and setlist of last week's PJ Harvey show at the Hammerstein.
File this one under the category of '45 bucks is a lot to spend on one show, but sometimes you've just gotta bite the bullet and eat pasta for 5 days straight.' I honestly don't know how I would have survived an opening assault of "Dress," "Who the F*ck," and "Big Exit" without having a heartattack, but it would have been nice to find out. Oh well.
And here's another Billboard link to one of the pro-Kerry Springsteen/Fogerty/R.E.M. shows in Cleveland. Notice how R.E.M.'s abbreviated set contained a mere two songs from their new record, which is still two too many if you ask me. Monster has a new rival in the used bin.
